Jungle Safaris

Bamboo Banks Farm is situated at the very edge of the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary & National Park offering a plethora of opportunities for game viewing and photography. The deciduous forests of Bandipur National Park are also easily accessible.


The habitat ranges from semi evergreen, moist and dry deciduous, thorny open scrub and also includes swamps, dry grasslands and cultivated teak plantations. This variety of habitats are home to many species of animals, both predators and prey. The imposing white-socked Gaur and hundreds of Chital grazing in the grasslands, the majestic elephant foraging in herds, wild boar rooting by the road side - can all be witnessed here - and if lucky, you could even see a Tiger or Wild Dogs hunting in a pack. The calls of the Peacock, Jungle Fowl and Partridge merge with the song of the Mynas, Parakeets, Barbets and Cuckoos to fill the air.


Early morning and evening Safaris into the jungle are organized by Government agencies and our Travel Desk will make the necessary arrangements for your convenience.


On your drive to Bamboo Banks many animals are sighted on the main road in the jungle area. We earnestly request you to please:

  • remain in your vehicle at all times,
  • Please do not feed the animals
  • keep the forest litter free

 

MUDUMALAI WILDLIFE SANCTUARY & NATIONAL PARK

Mudumalai, meaning "ancient hill range", was declared a sanctuary in 1940. Spread over an area of 321 km2, it is situated in the north eastern slopes of the Niligiri Range of the Western Ghats descending to the Mysore plateau and is at the trijunction of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu states. It is bounded by the Moyar River and spectacular Gorge (as deep as 260 m in some places) to the north. Bandipur NP is north of this gorge and the Wynaad Wildlife Sanctuary is to the west.

 

BANDIPUR NATIONAL PARK & TIGER RESERVE

The 880 km2 park adjoins Mudumalai WLS to the north. To the northwest of Bandipur is Nagarhole NP. The park has one of the country’s first Tiger Reserves with a core zone of 523 km2 .

 

NILIGIRI BIOSPHERE RESERVE (UNESCO and the Indian Government)

These protected areas form a part of the Niligiri Biosphere Reserve (5500 km2), which is arguably the best remaining stretch of habitat for the Asiatic elephant.
